Top of the day to you!

We are seeing an increasing trend toward family travel including multi-generational vacations. Family vacations offer a rare opportunity for relatives (and close friends) to come together – sometimes from hundreds or thousands of miles apart. Traveling with parents, siblings, kids, grandkids, and other family members can be an enriching shared experience and a powerful bonding opportunity while creating lasting memories of a lifetime. The time we spend with our loved ones may be the most precious time of our lives. 

However, it's not without challenges. It is essential that the trip include something for everyone, the right venue, location and activities that will satisfy all participants. Everybody must feel that they will get a vacation. Cruising is one of the best family vacation options, the all-inclusive nature of cruising means great value, and there’s always something fun to do for every member of the family.

Unlike travel booking websites, our travel advisors have the necessary expertise, knowledge and insider connections to help with the planning, coordination and reservations for all participants. We will take the time to get to know you and your family to make sure your vacation is perfectly tailored to your family's needs and desires. No cookie cutter, run-of-the-mill travel package, we will craft the perfect, customized vacation for you and your family.

Warm regards from all of us at Holiday Cruises & Tours,

Phil and Carol Swartz

Enchanting Ireland
by Ruth Rennick

The late Irish author, Maeve Binchy wrote, “If you don’t go to a dance, you can never be rejected; but you’ll never get to dance either.” After my first trip to Ireland last fall, I would like to compare the “dance" with a visit to this magical place. If I had not taken the opportunity to learn more about this ‘wee’ little country, I would never have known what I missed.
Brendan Vacations hosted a group of travel agents on an educational journey entitled “Enchanting Ireland & Ashford Castle” and I was fortunate enough to be a part of it. We started our journey in Dublin where we stayed at the Camden Court Hotel. This was a great, central location for exploring and seeing the sights of the city. Before the rest of the group arrived, I took a leisurely walk to Saint Stephen’s Green Park where one could wander for hours and not see it all. Our group began the trip with a visit to Trinity College to see the Book of Kells and finished off the day with a welcome reception at the EPIC Museum. Catherine Reilly, managing director of Brendan Vacations was there to extend a true Irish welcome. The EPIC (Every Person Is Connected) Museum is a “must see' for all who want to know the history of Irish emigration.

Las Vegas Married Couples Vacation

Every year we try our best to have a Married Couples vacation. With all of us raising families and busy working it is important to have an adult vacation.   Last year was a Bahamas cruise and this year we took on Las Vegas during Valentine’s weekend. 

We had so many options in Las Vegas for fun… entertainment, food, shopping and of course the gambling. We rode the monorail to each hotel casino on the strip which made it convenient to also tour the hotels. All the hotels had a different atmosphere from riding to the top of the Eiffel Tower in the Paris Hotel, we saw the fountain shows at Bellagio, plenty of shopping options and night time fun (what goes on in Vegas stays in Vegas).

Chynell, thanks for assisting us with all the preparations. The trip ran smoothly from the shuttle from the airport to the hotel check in at MGM Grand. We are looking forward to our 2020 vacation—next year someplace tropical.
